Posing Groomsmen Like a Boss // Santa Barbara, CA

I kind of crashed this shoot...  It was my second shoot during my trip to Santa Barbara, but I wasn't really "signed up" for it. :)  My roommate Christy was signed up... and after getting the chance to meet Jamie Ivins during lunch that day I asked if I could "tag along." :)

The whole shoot was all about posing the groomsmen like a boss.  Jamie shared a bit of his back story, how he started out shooting in the music and tattoo industry and after a few years got into weddings.  He has a great approach on connecting with the groom and groomsmen by shooting his signature "bad ass" shots first and showing them on the back of his camera to get the guys excited and willing to "work" for more images.

Thank you Jamie for sharing your approach and showing us the different shots you take at weddings!  It was definitely a lot of fun!  Thank you to all of the guys who modeled for what probably seems like a million photographers... your patience and cooperation was appreciated!

Here's my photos from the shoot!  Thanks to all of the guys who modeled as groomsmen for us... you were super cooperative, patient and great to work with!
